into the details of that, but i did find it curious that it was the fbi that has been leading this investigation on him and what he knew. and it raises concerns that the cia and fbi are at it again or at war again. we think? >> well, i have observed the privilege of knowing general petraeus for nearly a decade. i think he's a great man. so i have the feeling that he had done things for the country in iraq and afghanistan. neil: on all that, sir. the cia and the fbi -- [talking over each ther] >> [inaudible] it can be that the criteria of a particular investigation, i don't want to question the motives of the fbi. i am sure that they -- they have gone by the instructions of which they operate. neil: when you are undder president nixon, even when the administrations were competing, they thought that was okay. they thought they were doing better for the country. >> the fbi did it to prove the job. they did the internal pursuit of espionage in this country. they operated abroad. sometimes these lines might cross. i did not come across it during the watergate period. neil: we are not after that. this

at the present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation ongoing and that will give us the definitive word on what transpired. putting together the best information we have today, the current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hoyers before in cairo. a copycat attack which were prompted of course by the video. >> senator, you said that two days before that, director petraeus said it was terrorism. why didn't ambassador rice call it terrorism two days later? >> because she could speak publicly only on unclassified speaking points. i have some concern with those speaking points. but let me correct one thing. >> right. but what are the concerns and why speak at all? in other words, why was there a reference to it being a terrorist attack taken out of the public talking points? >> that is something that we're going to find out. but it was. that's the point. now, with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there is only one thing that was changed, and i've checked into
: fox news confirmed a friend of the petraeus famly, jill kelly, contacted the fbi said she got threatening e-mails from anonymous e-mail account, that e-mail, those anonymous e-mails were discovered to be linked to broadwell, the mistress of general petraeus. that kicked of the investigation into high gear over the summer. lawmakers and the white house apparently did not know anything about it. the white house says it didn't learn about any of this until just last week, right after election day and just as controversy continued to grow over the benghazi terror attack. kelly wright live in washington with more for us now. >> reporter: jenna, good morning to you. just as you said this is something very shocking to washington as well as mysterious. fox news learned fbi investigators confronted now former cia director david petraeus about his former relationship paula broadwell. the fbi discovered the affair months ago after jill kelly, a petra friend went to the fbi began receiving threatening e-mails from another woman. she was concerned someone was blackmailing petraeus. some qu
to testify tomorrow. are you concerned over the way the fbi handled the situation so far? specifically when you look at this? do you think the president should have been told about the investigation earlier? >> well, i'm on homeland security and my first priority is to ensure the national security of this nation but as well i want to not have us forget that we lost four valiant americans and we must continue to mourn them. it must be a sad time for their family. but i believe in process. and i do believe there is a time when the president of the united states should be notified. however, the fbi proceeds in investigations all the times. we should have some standards as to whether or not the fbi was in order in looking at what i consider may have been private matters. if it had to do with national security or they thought a crime was in play and they had the right to do so, i don't think we have the necessary standards. it looks like we don't have a test or at least it seems that we as congresspersons are concerned, when is the test when the president should be notified? the key question tod

has been going on for months? so i think the fbi has a lot of questions to answer. >> lots of people including my next guest obviously have serious doubts, serious misgivings about the administration's contention that thes president only learned aftr the election about the sex scandal that destroyed general david petraeus' career. he is congressman from utah. thanks for being with us. why does it stick in your craw that eric holder said he only told the president after the election was over? >> well, look. general petraeus wasn't heading up the fish and while life department. he's the head of the cia. if there's an investigation, a question about what he's doing in his personal life, i think that should come to the the president of the united states. he may not to choose to do anything, but to leave him in the dark is inexcusable. >> ik hear skepticism in your voice. do you believe that there is some misreception going on? >> what i'm worried about is that somewhere between the fbi and the department of justice, somebody didn't take this to the president of the united states. when yo
